Can I use Turnitin via Canvas and upload the papers myself? If so, how? I have Word files from a student and want to check for academic dishonesty. Thank you.
Hello Sasha Breger Welcome to the Canvas Community. Thanks for posting your question. I searched the Community for similar questions, and I found this one that I helped with about this time last year: How do I upload a student submission for an assignment?. I'm not sure if everything in that posting is still true today, but it might be worth reading through. As far as I'm aware, I don't believe that you can submit papers on behalf of a student using the Canvas/Turnitin LTI integration. Tagging Dallas E Hulsey in case anything has changed in the last year or so.
Thank you very much for the help! I ended up creating assignment slots in my sandbox and then uploading the files there, with Turnitin enabled. This worked, in case anyone else is looking to do this.

One more thing: I had to toggle between instructor and student view to do this (had to use student view to upload the paper, then back to professor view to see the Turnitin results).
